I hope someone can help me with this. I got a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from Korea (SM-N900S) and upgraded it to Android 4.4.2. It is branded as SK Telecom with software that I don't need but can't remove. Kies also displays update messages in Korean which I can not read, I was worried I do something wrong and mess up the device. It went safely but not sure this happens every time.
I need to remove the branding for both functional and cosmetic reasons and have a standard Note 3 Android, my questions are:
- Is there a way to unbrand and remove the SKT booting screen and apps and instead have a standard unbranded official plain vanilla Note 3 version without triggering KNOX or conflicing with future updates from Kies?
- Can I use a firmware from a different region of another submodel (SM-N900) without damaging the device or losing functionality like LTE?
- Can changing the CSC to another region remove the branding?
Thank you in advance.
